Royal Europe: The Last Meeting of the "Heirs'

Last month Europe's royal heirs traveled to the Netherlands for a visit to Apeldoorn, where the Prince and Princess of Orange hosted them.

Present were, from left: Guillaume and Stéphanie of Luxembourg, Prince Daniel and Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, the Prince and Princess of Asturias, Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, the Princess and Prince of Orange, the Duchess and Duke of Brabant, and Crown Prince Haakon of Norway.

Absent from the gathering of this very exclusive group were: Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway (a shopping spree in NYC kept her from this historica event), Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark (busy on official business), and Hereditary Prince Alois and Hereditary Princess Sophie of Liechtenstein. No one represented Monaco since the principality's rulers lack any children and the succession is unclear.
